Job Description

Are you passionate about empowering the local community to improving financial and social well-being, through access to good legal, financial, housing and debt advice?

Are you motivated to apply your experience and skills in shaping the financial health and strategic direction of a high impact charity that enables people in need to transform their lives?

Citizens Advice Lewisham (CAL) is the lead agency in the Advice Lewisham partnership providing vital services in a large and culturally diverse London Borough.

Through its dedicated staff and volunteers a wide range of advice and information services are provided to individuals enabling them to exercise their legal rights, resolve debt issues, secure benefit entitlement and sustain their accommodation.

Last year we dealt with over 18,000 contacts, generated around £2m in income and benefits, and brought in an additional £500k of resources to the local economy, and we are committed to improving on these achievements. Our partnership with Southwark Law Centre to set up a new Lewisham Law Service is also developing well, with plans to further fundraise to deliver an employment and immigration service in the borough.

Future strategy will focus on developing our fundraising to develop wider services to meet the increasing need in the local community, and developing our digital strategy to maximise access and improve the customer journey experience.

As Treasurer you will apply your financial skills to ensure excellent financial governance, working effectively with the dedicated Board and Chief Executive, and make a difference to the lives of people in the local community.

If you can demonstrate the required attributes for the role in the role description, we would love to hear to hear from you.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
